To coincide with the re-launch of the World famous Universal Studios Hollywood Tour and Universal Studios Hollywood SM is conducting an “Online Casting Call” for aspiring tour guides. 2 lucky winners will be featured on the Universal Studios website and be invited to Hollywood to celebrate the grand re-opening of the studio tour.
The “Online Casting Call” opportunity calls for Universal Studios Hollywood Facebook fans to submit audition videos, with the winners invited to attend the red carpet premiere of the re-launched Studio Tour attraction.
From April 11 through May 1, 2011, contestants will be directed to Universal Studios Hollywood’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/UniversalStudiosHollywood to access the “Online Casting Call” contest and submit a 90-second video. Whether it’s a house, dorm, car or neighborhood, the tour guide narrative must convey that a movie was filmed at that precise location to mirror the Studio Tour’s behind-the-scenes experience of movie making. Beginning May 2, “Online Casting Call” video entries will be open up to public voting on Facebook. A user may vote for two videos, once a day, until the voting period ends on May 11. Judges will then review the public vote finalists and select two winners, based on originality, imagination, storytelling skills and a passion for the art of filmmaking. The two winning videos will be posted on Thursday, May 16 via the official Universal Studios Hollywood Facebook page wall. Winners will receive red carpet treatment to Universal Studios Hollywood and an invitation to attend the grand opening celebration of the Studio Tour featuring Jimmy Fallon in the Spring. The prize includes airfare, roundtrip airport transportation, two-night hotel accommodation, Front of Line theme park passes and All You Can Eat passes for Universal Studios Hollywood for each winner and a guest.So?
